Southeast Asia has been the birthplace of many important intellectuals; one the most prominent and well known is José Rizal [1861–1896] from the Philippines. Whilst some remain private intellectuals, others became prominent public intellectuals and their ideas stimulated debates that led to social and educational reforms. This review essay turns its focus to Rosnani Hashim's edited volume that selected a few Muslim intellectuals and narrated their stories. Each of them left behind rich legacies and the chapters in this volume illustrated to what extent and in which way each of them made a difference to the education arenas in which they operated. This review essay thus seeks to reflect upon each of the chapters.
